Lotus Foods Organic Volcano Rice Bowl
Lotus Foods' new convenient Heat & Eat microwaveable rice bowls are ready in just 60-90 seconds, making eating organic, whole grain heirloom rice a quick and simple pleasure while supporting family farmers practicing unique sustainable growing methods.
The health benefits of whole grains are well established*, but getting delicious whole grains into the diet can be difficult. Our rice bowls deliver "fast food" for today's busy, health-conscious families without sacrificing great taste and nutritional value.
Organic Volcano Rice is produced through Lotus Foods' partnership with the Simpatik Organic Cooperative rice farmers located in West Java, Indonesia. They grow rice on highly fertile volcanic soils, rich in minerals and micronutrients, and use More Crop Per Drop methods.
Generally known as the System of Rice Intensification or SRI, this set of practices enables farmers to grow more rice with less water, seed and labor, especially less labor for women. Because their rice paddies are not permanently flooded, there is little or no emission of methane, a major greenhouse gas that warms the earth. Lotus Foods is the first and only US company to date to work with SRI farmers to help them market their more sustainably grown, high-quality traditional rice.
Lotus Foods rice bowls are a super easy, instant start to a complete meal paired with fresh vegetables and protein or a quick, healthy snack right out of the bowl. Throw in some avocado and beans! They are a great short cut to delicious soups, salads, and stir-fries.
